We have visited the Blacksmiths Arms because of the locality, pleasant atmosphere, good beers, and easy parking. I give a 4/5 because the food is very good, and the serving staff are above average. However, they lose a point, or perhaps more, because for the last 3 visits the time taken for the food to arrive has been too long.... More

I'm someone that is more likely to write a favourable review than a critical one, but I've had one too many bad experiences here to not say anything, which is a shame because I've also had plenty of perfectly nice meals there, albeit they tend to have been Sunday roasts where the majority of people are ordering the same thing....

The service went from bad to worse, I wouldn't recommend the Blacksmith arms any more. The male member of staff was very rude. Listening , customer service comes with the job , well in most cases.

One of the nicest Sunday dinners I have had in a long time with added excellent customer service. The staff are really friendly and best of all they leave you to enjoy your food.

Pub is very pleasant and welcoming, enjoy many times over the years. Food was nice but service poor and slow in restaurant. Not enough staff on even though wasn't over busy. Sent dessert back twice didn't come out as advertised decided to not have in the end, was very disappointed.

I love Chef and Brewer and took my other half for our first date to the C&B in Hyde, but the food and service was very poor at the Macclesfield C&B. The restaurant was not even busy but there was a 25 minute wait for starters after it took 15 minutes to even get a menu and order. The soup... More

The pub is easy on the eye from inside and out, with a good menu which is averagely priced for a chain pub, which you come to expect. We visited as a four on Saturday at 3.30 pm and were told there would be a 45 minute wait, but given no reason why? The pub itself looked at about 25%... More

Waited over 45 minutes for mains and there were only 3 other tables. Food was dry, even salads were not fresh, some cold food some tasteless and over cooked or re heated.
